Hurting, Now and Then

Since I’ve been hurt,
it’s so difficult to flirt.
Taking the little chances that everyone takes –
make eye contact,
a sweet smile,
few well placed touches,
perhaps a cheeky joke
and some naughty insinuations if possible.

It used to be so easy
but now the consequences seem too great.
Now slightly
too aware
of how hard it is to care
for someone like me.

Don’t drunken-text use me,
it just confuses me
senses,
making me pensive.
